Abstract

Time plays a proeminent role in development of a knowledge based society, in a context of changing rhythms of work, ageing of the European population, changing family structures and greater sensitiveness to time issues among European citizens. In this contribution we highlight the manner time is used for economic activities in Romania and situate it in the context of European employment strategies (Luxemburg 1997, the Lisbon and Barcelona summits in 2000 and 2001). We focus on differences existing between the Romanian regions and on the economic consequences of different patterns in time use.
